Player to Watch: Nicolas Fernandez

Since we can see Defensa y Justicia resisting River Plate in this match, our player to watch for the game is their forward Nicolas Fernandez, the team's top scorer so far.

The experienced Argentinian has eight goals and one assist in eighteen appearances for the team in Liga Profesional, so River Plate need to keep a close eye on Fernandez in this game.
